We will be doing school during the summer. It gets downright miserable here during the summer. I have talked it over with the kiddos and they have decided to do school just a few times a week and only a couple of hours each time. The main thing that they will have to do is math and reading. We also will be doing some unit studies. We are starting off with China on Monday. The following week will do a week long unit on Hurricanes. Then we will do 2 weeks on the Olympics. After that the kids will be splitting up for 2 weeks. They will go one at a time to my in-laws for 4 days each. They are really looking forward to it. All 3 kiddos are also participating in 2 different summer reading programs. There is one at the library and then one with the local Minor League Baseball team. Yesterday we went to the baseball teams kickoff. It was a lot of fun. They had a story teller and the bookmobile there. We left with FREE tickets to a game at the end of the year. How cool is that ????? The kiddos are also taking part in the local art museum's summer art program. They have 1 lesson a month.
After every one returns home from their grandparents we will have 1 week until we go to Maryland. We are hoping to get to Washington DC while we are up there. Dragon saw the Washington Monument on TV and he wants to go see it. He also wants to go see the White House. So we are planning on spending the day in Washington D.C. I think that it will be a lot of fun.
When we return we will take a couple of weeks off to enjoy the rest of the summer.
What are your plans for the summer?
